Breast Cancer Treatment: Surgery

Breast Cancer: Surgery and Diagnosis 

Surgery remains the most common treatment for breast cancer, and several types of surgery are used to treat cancer, depending on many factors.

Doctors at Woman’s perform breast-conservation surgery, where as little of the natural breast tissue as possible is lost when removing the cancer, and more extensive surgery, where most to all of the breast is removed.

Your doctor can explain each type, discuss and compare the benefits and risks, and describe how each surgery will change the way you look.
